Air Force sergeant shoots, helps NC intruder


Friday, October 24, 2008

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Police say an Air Force sergeant shot an intruder at his North Carolina apartment, then gave the man first aid while waiting for police officers to arrive.

Fayetteville police said Sgt. Jared Johnson came home Thursday afternoon to find two men inside, The Fayetteville Observer reported Friday. Police Sgt. Samuel Oates said Johnson shot one man in the leg.

Neighbor Jamal Triplett said he heard the gunshot and saw Johnson outside tending to the man's wound while calling 911.

"The guy was just lying on the ground, screaming," Triplett said.

Oates said the wounded man was identified as Christopher Pittman and was charged with the break-in. Pittman was treated at a hospital for non life-threatening injuries.

Oates said a car full of stolen items from a break-in at another apartment complex was left at Johnson's apartment.

The other man was arrested a few hours later, but released after a magistrate ruled there wasn't enough evidence to hold him.

"He just protected himself," Triplett said of Johnson. "I'd do the same thing. I'm glad he did it."

NO its great training, see we have a class once a year for treating wounds and such, this is just a great training example. We practice shooting, then do SABC on the guy!!!

At least that is what we think out here in Iraq :lol:
